Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s first joint address to Congress:

“Tonight, we heard from a President who is committed to fulfilling his campaign promises to the American people. I share President Trump’s dedication to rolling back the excessive and burdensome regulations that are hurting small businesses and stifling the entrepreneurial spirit for which this nation is known. I agree with President Trump’s commitment to the rule of law – to ensure the safety and potential for success for all Americans. I join President Trump in his desire to unwind the failure that is Obamacare and work to restore a working health care system that expands access and lowers costs for families across Minnesota and the country. And most importantly, I fully support President Trump’s optimism and request for all Americans, and all Members of Congress, to work together to benefit the future of this great nation for now and for years to come.”
